Starting to look like we really won't get much in exchange for Vic at this point. Hope he can come back strong to showcase or to stay. https://www.hothothoops.com/2020/11/6/21553585/miami-heat-victor-oladipo-trade-discussions-back-away
We’re covered the possibility of Victor Oladipo coming to the Miami Heat a lot here. And in his recent mega-preview of the NBA offseason, ESPN’s Zach Lowe added a tidbit about Miami’s interest in the former All-Star.
Lowe said that it would not surprise him to see Oladipo and the Indiana Pacers discuss a contract extension because “some potential suitors, like the Miami Heat, have likely backed away.”
There’s a little more to that but I quoted the article that’s based off of just a couple posts up in this thread.
As for the Miami, I completely understand. The emergence of Tyler Herro totally complicated that situation for Oladipo, if he were to want to be there at all (which, it sounds like it’s his preferred alternative if it doesn’t work here in Indians, which is his overall preference to stay, even according to the Miami Herald sports writers).
Otherwise, the other thing is that if teams want to see him return before making offers, and he returns close to his original health, the price will rise, too. Sure, he’ll still be a potential rental, but the health won’t be a question and theoretically, he’d be the single highest impact player available on the market midseason.
